Mason: Mommy, can I go out and play in the snow?
Me: No, because we have to go get your eyes checked.
Me: Because you have never had your eyes checked.
Mason (in somewhat of a panic): No we do not! I am not getting glasses!
Me: Well, hopefully you will not need glasses, but we still need to have your eyes checked.
Mason (as if inferring he has something else to do): Well I am going to have a piece of cake.
Me: Okay, well we are still going to get your eyes checked.
Tonight Mason and I went to the eye doctor. I figured it was about time he have his eyes checked for routine purposes ... and I needed to have mine checked as an annual followup to laser surgery.
Mason is a tiny bit far sighted and he has a little bit of astigmatism ... nothing that requires glasses for now. Mason should be happy about that.
I asked the optometrist about the brown spot on Mason's right eye. It has always been there and I've always sort of wondered if there is anything I should be worrying about. And the answer is no. After looking at it through the microscope, the doctor told me that is it completely flat (versus being raised) and likened it to a freckle.
As far as I am concerned, I continue to see better than a fighter pilot ... thankyouverymuch. In 2007, I had Wavefront CustomVue LASIK with IntraLase and I'm told this new technology is the reason I am continuing to see better than 20/15 in both eyes.
Now where is my jet?
